Silver Ridge Retreat is a ten-minute drive from restaurants and shops in Sheffield, the “Town of Murals” and a 15-minute drive from Lake Barrington International Rowing Course, local Truffle tours and Tasmazia, the world’s largest outdoor hedge maze complex. It is a 35-minute drive from Cradle Mountain, Mole Creek Caves, Trowunna Wildlife Park and Tassie’s Tasting Trail.
Surrounded by alpine fields, contented cows and horses, Silver Ridge Retreat is a peaceful relaxing experience. “Noise” here is bird song, wind and running water.
